And with flashing lights and HD cameras capturing their every move, it’s important that stars put their best skin forward.
COSMEDIX is spilling the secret to achieving Red Carpet-ready skin right in the comfort of your own home with double cleansing methods and at-home peels that help promote a healthier-looking complexion for your next big event!
Ten Steps to Superstar Skin
Step 1: First Cleanse
Double cleansing has become all the rave in the skincare industry as a way to ensure skin is fully prepped for serums and moisturizers. Purity Solution, COSMEDIX’S Nourishing Deep Cleansing Oil, kicks off the regimen with a nutrient-rich blend of olive, moringa, kukui, safflower, sesame and argan oils to gently break down dirt, excess oil and impurities without stripping away essential moisture.
Step 2: Double Cleanse
Take cleansing to the next level with Purity Clean, an Exfoliating Cleanser packed with lactic acid, tea tree and peppermint oil to help improve the look of uneven texture and tone. This is essential in creating a flawless-looking canvas for makeup application, as the Chirally Correct L-Lactic Acid (5%) helps exfoliate away cellular debris and pore-clogging impurities.
Step 3: Degrease
Degreasing is key in achieving a healthy-looking glow that doesn’t turn into shine under flashing lights. Say goodbye to excess oil with Purity Balance, an Exfoliating Prep Toner, that helps restore balance for a complexion that radiates beauty, not unwanted shine.
Step 4: At-Home Peel
A big occasion is the perfect excuse to treat your skin to an at-home peel and Pure Enzymes Cranberry Exfoliating Mask delivers the results you want without the dreaded downtime. Polish away dull surface cells and pore-clogging impurities with a nourishing blend of cranberry enzymes and lactic acid.
Step 5: Hot towel off
Gently remove the mask with a warm towel until skin is completely clean.
Step 6: Degrease
Repeat Step 3 by degreasing the skin with Purity Balance.
Step 7: Serums
Apply your favorite serums to help promote a healthier-looking complexion. Simply Brilliant 24/7 Brightening Serum is packed with 10 skin-specific brightening ingredients that improve the look of dull, discolored and uneven skin tone, as well as hyperpigmented and photodamaged skin.
Step 8: Moisturizer
We’ve all seen celebrities with an enviable glow that never screams shiny, so achieve your very own radiant look with Shineless Oil-Free Moisturizer that’s formulated to reduce the look of shine for a visibly firmer, smoother and brighter complexion over time.
Step 9: Eye Cream
Prior to a big event, give your under-eye area special attention with bestselling Opti Crystal Liquid Crystal Eye Serum that’s formulated with liquid crystal technology, powerful antioxidants and copper complex to provide lasting hydration and eliminate the look of dark circles, fine lines and crow’s feet.
Step 10: SPF
SPF is an everyday essential and Hydrate+ Broad Spectrum SPF 17 is a Moisturizing Lotion that helps keep skin protected, while fighting age-accelerating free radicals and future sun damage.
